Hello, I think this will also be the last thing I say about FC (which I still may or may not read more of). I just don't think I can support an editorial decision that makes me feel dread about reading a book that I would otherwise like to read. I've read about a number of FC readers saying that the book made them feel very sad. So why would I willingly let myself experience such a disaster? I'm not a masochist. Is this how TPTB want some fans to feel about their books; I guess they do, but why (power trip, maybe)? So, maybe no more Voyager books for me and THAT does make me feel sad, and cheated. Well, good luck (not), Pocket books & Janeway does live on no matter what you think, & you may have won the battle, but not the war. GS, 40 yr Trek fan. PS, and I would think (no offense to other fans' sincere opinions) that in the hands of a vg writer, the rest of the crew could have been developed just as well as with the current situation, if not better.
